The right color spells productivity.
More and more people are adding home offices, libraries and quiet rooms to their homes — but that doesn’t mean the design has to be sleepy. All of these spaces are vibrant and inspiring, making it a room someone would seek out — not avoid.
Coordinate your patterns.
Sometimes it takes a polished, professional-looking space to feel motivated. The coordinating (but not matchy-matchy) patterns on the window treatment and chair in this Dering Hall office designed by Sara Gilbane Interiorsdoes the trick.
Stick with sets.
Don’t underestimate the power of a coordinating office accessories to keep your space organized and streamlined. This white lacquered set looks clean and modern.
Infuse with inspiration.
Color has the power to get your creative juices flowing and improve your mood (a must when work’s involved), which is why the statement art in this office from Dering Hall and designed by West Haddon Hall is so effective.
Pick accessories that pop.
Metallics like gold, brass and silver have a way of instantly elevating a space, without being too distracting. Even better: This swivel lamp will make sure you never have to strain your eyes to see.
Keep the backdrop white.
If your style changes faster than your computer background, keep your space all white. You can switch in new pillows, patterns and accent colors as you desire, as proven by this Dering Hall office designed by Jen Talbot Design.
